Description

Here is a first edition copy of “Ojo in Oz”, one of the harder to find and thus more desirable vintage Oz titles. Written by Ruth Plumly Thompson, successor to L. Frank Baum. Copyright 1933 by Reilly & Lee, this is a 1st edition, first printing with 12 beautiful color plates by John R. Neill. This book was only issued for about 2 years with the plates, because In 1935 Reilly & Lee stopped including the color plates to cut costs. This book also is in the “A” binding, according to the Book Collector’s Guide to Baum, with the boldface publisher’s imprint.

Book is in near very good condition. The pastedown cover is very good, the cloth and spine have light wear. Inside, both hinges are cracked but the binding is holding. Front endpaper has 1933 inscription, some age toning, and some circular depressions in the paper. Rear endpaper has some foxing. All 12 plates are present and in very good condition. Pages in very good condition. A hard-to-find Thompson first!
